    Football Anime worth watching
    I went into this show thinking that it was one of those shows where the kids have super powers and there possibly being an evil rival that was out to destroy everything but instead it was much more real than I thought. All the characters had good tie-ins to each other and you could identify with most of them. If you love Football(Soccer) and Anime. I highly recommend this show!

    It was enjoyable, yet disgruntling.
    Story. (6/10)
    Based on the popular soccer manga by, Kibayashi Shin and Tsukiyama Kaya; The Knight in the Area (Area no Kishi) tells the story of a young boy named, Aizawa Kakeru, whose potential is only exceeded by his self doubt. Kakeru must endure misfortune early on in the story, misfortune that only makes him stronger as a person and rekindles his love for the game. The story kicks off when ...

    An anime that catches you by surprise.
    When I looked at this anime I thought "Oh just another sports anime" and I can tell you I was completely wrong, I love the story and the characters and even teared up a couple times. This is definitely worth the time. On a side note this anime made me want to play soccer as well, they make that interesting and compelling even for those of us who never cared for soccer.

    Not Bad but Not Good Neither
    Episodes Watched / Episodios Vistos
    37/37

    English
    I start watching this anime about 1 month after its premiere; the beginning looks awesome, however, after the first episodes it become really slow and does not show any real development (main char and story). Not sure about the manga but the anime it kind of disappoint me. I was expecting something like EyeShield 21 or Captain Tsuba, but is ...

  • This anime should not be overlooked.
    I hate actual sports but for some unknown reason I love this anime. I keeps me enthralled with it. The characterization is amazing and I love all of them. The plot is like any other sports anime, win the big tournament but somehow it doesn't get old. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    This definitely needs a second season. And Araki should stay thin. I like him better that way.

  • Una trama Exelente para describir un buen anime
    Aizawa Suguro es el mejor jugador de Japon, llegando a ser llamado como "El Tesoro de Japon", participándo ya con la camiseta y portando el numero 10 de la Sub-15 japonesa. Aizawa Kakeru, hermano menor de Suguru, es todo lo contrario, no es muy bueno y es timido, el llamado "Señor NO Gol" por no haber anotado ni un gol durante su estancia en una escuela, a la que igual asiste Suguru, pero un dia ...

    A Great Anime with Intense Games
    This is a great anime. It made my love for soccer--and sports--grow all the more powerful. The relationships between the characters are really strong, and how INTENSE they make the soccer games makes me actually think it's a real live game. I'm literally cheering for a non-existent team, forgetting about the Superbowl or the footballs games that are actually happening.

    In only one episode, the ...
